On June 27, Myanmar announced that the government awarded a telecommunications contract to Qatari company Ooredo. It sparked a social media backlash in Myanmar. Citizens threatened boycott of its services. The Buddhist community was surprised by the win, especially as public pressure on the government in 2012 blocked the Organization of Islamic Countries from opening a Myanmarese office. The incidents reflect societal prejudice against OIC’s intentions. A grand strategy to spread Islamic...

The country's powerful military and Chinese firms could be most affected by the move as the government pursues a radical reform agenda, turning away from decades of junta rule, according to the Asia Society. Myanmar has huge reserves of resources -- ranging from petroleum to tin, timber...

The Thai government has embarked on a disastrous and costly rice subsidy program to benefit its rice farmers – the program cost the government $4.4 billion last year – but an unexpected beneficiary turned out to be Myanmar, as Thai traders flock to the neighboring country to buy rice that will then be sold to the Thai government at a hiked price. "For a long time, Thailand did not buy any rice from Myanmar… But at the beginning of this year, Thai traders started to buy normal rice and broken...

RANGOON — Burma’s extractive industries remain plagued by transparency and governance shortcomings, a watchdog said on Wednesday as it released a report attempting to dampen the hype that has surrounded the country’s opening up to foreign investment after decades of isolation and economic stagnation. The report by the Shwe Gas Movement pummeled the existing regulatory regime as woefully inadequate to address the social and environmental concerns facing Burma as its resource bounty is put up...

British American Tobacco is returning to Burma a decade after campaigners forced the world’s second-largest tobacco company by market share to leave the country due to BAT’s links with the military regime. BAT said it would spend about $50 million on a factory in Burma (also known as Myanmar) to produce its London brand of cigarettes after it left the country following an “exceptional” request from the British government to stop doing business there in 2003. Tony Blair, the prime minister...
